The search for fulfillment through a career transition to impact investing
Author: Ben Cooper
I am a proud Idaho native and Notre Dame alum, currently transitioning careers from private equity consulting into the impact investing space.
I'm an analytical problem solver and a connector. I am passionate about leveraging for-profit business models and traditional capital markets to make a positive social change. I truly believe that we can find profitable and sustainable solutions to many social problems. I'm pursuing this passion by quitting my 4.5-year consulting gig, where I helped private equity firms assess investment opportunities, to pivot my career into impact investing.
I enjoy traveling (domestically and internationally), spending time outside (hiking, camping, fishing), and following sports (Go Irish!).
